The coming decade is going to be about climate change. The good news is that many communities across America are asking what they can do, and are looking for examples of what works best. Since 2012 Climate Now, The Collider, and others have been actively developing elements of a vision to make Asheville, North Carolina a climate change leader. As the home of the National Climatic Data Center (now NCEI), Asheville is a place where innovators convene to create, share and refine the techniques and technologies of climate response. A living laboratory where we learn to create truly sustainable, climate change communities.
To become a bonafide climate leader will require a focused and energetic transition that brings together resources ranging from traditional skills to cutting-edge innovation. It will also require broad community participation. One way you can be part of the Community Climate Team is by registering your products and services for climate change living here. You can also attend an event, or host a Climate Gathering, so talk it over and contact us to arrange a date. With your participation and support, we can all work together to make the Asheville region a climate change leader. Climate City!
